WTF Moments From President Trump’s Weird Press Conference
“Russia is fake news,” claimed President Donald Trump during his very crazy and weird press conference Thursday afternoon. Trump came fully prepared – at least he thought- and delivered a rather hastily press conference to the shock of many.
It was almost as if Trump just woke up Thursday morning and thought, “you know what would be a great idea? Lets have a press conference and i’ll let them as me anything they would like!”
Reporters were shocked, as they typically would have a conference with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
While the event was obviously orchestrated in order to roll out his new labor of secretary nominee, Trump clearly overshadowed his new labor secretary announcement with his own rather typical crazy antics of his own.
Here are some WTF moments from President Trumps weird spontaneous press conference.
Everything is just fake news in Trumps eyes
“The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.”
That time he couldn’t say Flynn lied
“The thing is, he didn’t tell our vice president properly, and then he said he didn’t remember … that just wasn’t acceptable to me.”
That time he wanted us to believe the rollout of his ‘travel ban’ went “smooth”
“We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban; we had a bad court.”
That time he claimed that the entire country of Russia is just a pile of “fake news”…. because everything is “fake news.”
“Russia is fake news. Russia, this is fake news put out by the media. The real news is the fact that people, probably from the Obama administration because they’re there – because we have our new people going in place… right now.”
That time he claimed he hasn’t made a phone call to Russia in years and therefore has no knowledge on if his team colluded with Russia during his campaign
“Nobody that I know of. How many times do I have to answer this question? Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven’t made a phone call to Russia in years.”
That time he believed he wasn’t a bad person…
“And I’ll tell you what else I see. I see tone. You know the word ‘tone’? The tone is such hatred. I’m really not a bad person, by the way. No, but the tone is such – I do get good ratings, you have to admit that – the tone is such hatred.”
That time he thought that drugs and candy are the same price
“We’ve ordered the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to coordinate on a plan to destroy criminal cartels coming into the United States with drugs. We’re becoming a drug-infested nation. Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”
That time he needed to assert his manhood, and remind us that he could shoot the Russian vessel lurking off the East coast of the United States.
“The greatest thing I could do [politically] is shoot that ship that’s 30 miles offshore right out of the water.”
That time he insulted everyone in the room
“I’m not ranting and raving. I’m just telling you you’re dishonest people.”
That time he started to regret this spontaneous press conference
“I want to find a friendly reporter.”
That time he made Twitter and Facebook almost crash by claiming the Nuclear Holocaust would be like no other.
“Nuclear holocaust would be no like no other. They’re a very powerful nuclear country and so are we.”

The Twitterverse Explodes
Trump’s media conference clearly didn’t go as planned and has in fact rather started a even bigger uproar against the President of the United States.
The massive social media sites Twitter and Facebook both nearly crashed during Trump’s conference and it was mostly due to the massive amount of negative tweets or posts against the President.
